Jurgen Klopp reacts to Liverpool’s first Premier League loss in more than a year

Jurgen Klopp refused to make any excuses after Liverpool's unbeaten run came to an end against Watford .

The Reds slipped to the first defeat in 45 games after they lost 3-0 at Vicarage Road to run any chance of going the whole Premier League season unbeaten.

Ismaila Sarr scored twice to put the runaway leaders to the sword, while Troy Deeney was also on target for the relegation-threatened Hornets.

However, Klopp admits the best team won and says his side must accept the loss in the right banner.

He said: "They did exactly what they wanted to do, we did not. That's how football works.

"The first half was a tough one, a lot of second balls, running here and there, we had the ball a lot but we didn't come in the right positions to cross, the right positions to finish, against a really good, organised side, with a top set-up for this game.

"You have to accept it, it's not so easy, but it's the proof we were not good enough tonight. It's always very difficult.

"We have to accept if after. In the game you have to fight. We were 3-0 down but we still tried, there were no silly situations where somebody got frustrated and tried to kick someone.

"If you win good, if you lose, try to do it in the right manner and do it like a man."
